  (Rating Hidden)

Great TV - Rubbish Manual!


I bought this TV two weeks ago to relace a 10 year old Sony that was beginning to lose its sharpness when compared to the technology available nowadays. The TV itself provides an excellent picture with a good, clear sound - although I play mine through...
